How to Know If ADHD Coaching Is For You

Let’s take a look at some signs that show you might want to consider adding an ADHD Coach to your “Live Successfully with ADHD Team.”

Eight Signs that Indicate You May Need an ADHD Coach:

  1. You’re feeling persistently overwhelmed in your day-to-day life.
  1. You don’t know what task to focus your attention on first. You feel scattered and lost at home and/or at work. 
  1. Your relationships are being impacted because you’re often unfocused, forgetting things, arriving late or not showing up at all.
  1. You’re working way too much, often spending extra hours in the office or working on the weekends to stay on top of things.
  1. During those long, late work hours, your days drift by with little accomplished. Nothing is getting done.
  1. You know your ADHD is blocking your success but you aren’t sure what to do.
  1. You’ve actually been rather successful but now you’re about to step into a new role and want to hit it with the best you can be. You need better skills like “how to delegate” and “how to lead meetings”.
  1. You need a safe place where you can admit your struggles with a person who understands ADHD and won’t harshly judge or criticize you. 

Even if you only said yes to one or two, an ADHD Coach may be the solution you’re looking for.

There is a catch, though.

You have to be willing to be coached and put in the work. Will you show up to every call? Will you be aware and present? Will you take what we discuss and put it into practice? 

You see, an ADHD Coach can’t magically make you more organized. We aren’t going to show up to toss out the clutter. And we can’t be your alarm clock, chauffeur or task-doer.

What we can do is guide you, teach you, and help you. Problem-solve, troubleshoot, get creative, celebrate with you.

Just like an athletic coach can’t make you practice, we can’t make you put in the work necessary to see transformation. Only you can do that part. 

Two Ways to Be ADHD Coached

So now you know about ADHD coaching and ADHD coaches, how does it all work exactly?

Well, there are multiple ways to be coached, but my two favorites are group and one-to-one coaching.

Group Coaching

One example of group coaching is my ADHD Success Club. You learn skills to help you succeed with ADHD in a weekly call where others join in. Topics include: time and task management, prioritizing, organization, clutter, symptom management, treatment strategies and more. 

There is incredible power in this group setting especially when it comes to problem solving, sharing and feeling less alone. You learn from the ADHD Coach (me!) leading the trainings and also from the experiences of others. Check it out here.

One-to-One Private Coaching

The other form of coaching is one-to-one which is ideal for those who want more in depth coaching allowing them to get specific on their personal needs.
